Stuffy nose, sore throat and cough post a bang on the head. Is it related?

Hi! I play Rugby and just yesterday, I accidentally experienced a headbutt with someone on the field. I was hit on my right eyebrow, but no cut or whatsoever (just swelling ). My question is, the day after my nose was stuffy, I had sore throat and coughs. I was just wondering if this is something serious. The discharge on my nose is also white/clear. hoping to hear from you soon! :)
